A Digg Dialogg came out today with Trent Reznor and it turns out he pitched a game.

I'll let him tell the story though

If it doesn't involve him and three Triceratops on a hackneyed ferris wheel over molten lava I'm not interested.

Trent Reznor has always been a big gamer and really knows his stuff. He's a pure geek but I think a lot of people don't know this.

Man, I almost thought that was me talking. I'm the only person I know that would rather play a 10 dollar downloadable game than the newest Call of Duty. I just feel like the new war games feel so flat and lifeless without any creativity but the XBLA and wiiware stuff is exciting as hell.
Nice to hear someone else agree with me that isn't on GAF.

Amen to that. Flower was easily one of my best gaming experiences of late.

I remember reading an article about him where he used to play this quake 2 mod called weapons factory. It was basically a team fortress clone for quake 2 and it was a rather small community. Used to think how cool it was that I unknowingly played quake with Trent Reznor.

I concur. I saw them on when he was touring in support of The Fragile and it was an awesome experience.

He did the entire soundtrack for quake. And it is still one of the best video game soundtracks ever.

And yeah, he's beefed up a bit since the last time I saw him. He's been buff for a long time now, but he's also put on a bit of 'other' weight too.

Pretty interesting about reznor trying to push a game idea to a major games publisher. Perhaps in the future if the idea ever pops up again he can do it more "indie" style on a download service.

That kinda sucks about Tapeworm, I always wondered what was up with that, since NIN and Tool both rank among my all time favorites. Strange to hear an artist admit something they did was mediocre.

OP: Thanks for the link to the interview, was genuinely interesting.

my sister rode jetskis with trent and the rest of his NIN mates (whoever at the time), in the spillway just outside of new orleans.

I can't remember a time I felt more jealous then that. I'm not a star struck person, and I really can't stand people that treat them above other people... but I genuinely would love to pick Reznor's brain.

I thought this was common knowledge. The NIN logo was used for the Nailgun ammo afterall. :p

He was originally going to be involved with Doom 3, but he had some neat sounding ideas about how to make the music and sound more involved (or something like that, it was like 6 years ago give me a break :p) and Carmack disagreed so they went separate ways. Chris Vrenna was the guy who ended up doing the music to Doom 3 iirc.

That's too bad.
Visually Doom3 was amazing, but my take-away was a very generic shooter.
Would have been neat to see it do something different.

I only knew Reznor as the man involved with Quake. After that, I expected him to be quite informed on video games, but not this much. Interesting to hear him say the same thing I've been feeling for years.

"Same game, looks better".

Cosmic coincidence. Right around the time SMW hit America, Pretty Hate Machine had only just reached the Billboard top 100 albums. Point being that nin was still very much a cult thing on the verge at that point.

Heh. Coincidentally, I've been teaching myself to play Leaving Hope on the piano all day.

Trent has been ahead of the curve for awhile.

I went to the Lights In The Sky tour (Denver, CO - Red Rocks Amphitheater). It was fucking amazing. One of the most amazing things I've witnessed in my life. I'll be going to NIN/JA as well.

More than N'Gai Croal, IMO, who sounds intelligent but I almost feel like he's bullshitting like someone would do while in college.

If Reznor appeared on a gaming podcast I would lap it all up.
